learned that governor dan malloy has shown up at the funeral of little noah, 6 years old, noah posner, who has a twin and an 8-year-old sister, and there was a heartbreaking question asked in his obituary. how do you capture the essence of a 6-year-old in just a few words? when i first came here on friday, alex, i was talking to the local priest. they lost ten young parishioners. they will have eight funeral this is week, and he told me about a little girl even before we knew the mamz who he said he lost who was going to be an angel m christmas pageant, and i talked to her cousin today, and he was called uncle. she called him uncle john. he talked about yesterday being at the cemetery with her family and another family picking up burial plots for 6-year-old children, so i think when you have those kinds of stories, you cannot help but make it change the conversation. yesterday when the president was here at the high school right behind me as people were going in, they said they were there to honor the victims, not to be with the president, but when he said we can't tolerate this anymore, y
the scene between the governor dan malloy there in connecticut and the parents waiting to hear. >> it's got to be a wrenching job that the governor has in front of him right now. we have seen him briefly, we saw him leaving the fire house and we saw him coming back. we know as his spokesperson said earlier, he has been speaking with the parents. that's what's taking place right now. this is the volunteer fire house right down this street. sandy hook elementary school. right down this street is where the elementary school is. the students were rushed out of the school and brought to this fire station. parents coming here to reunite with their children. one of the most poignant things that we have seen today, one of the horrifying things, parents, married couples leaving here arm in arm without their children. one can simply use basic logic to deduce perhaps they lost their child. there will be more than 20 parents who get terrible, terrible news today as this unfolds. and the governor is doing some of that hard work right now. one presumes. the other thing that we're seeing here today ambula
the governor of connecticut, dan malloy, who has been meeting with the parents of those young children who were killed this morning in this very lensless tragedy. john, is the president about to come into the press briefing room? we'll leave that picture up so we know when the president enters. the white house is getting all of the latest information from the f.b.i. director. they're on top of this as well. >> that's right. this is a thing where, you know, the situation will light up and they'll start to get this information. in a fast-moving incident-- and this is my experience as a former assistant director of the f.b.i.-- sometimes inside information is overrated. which is you're getting information from n realtime from the scene, from the actual players on the ground and as we experience in trying to cover a story like that that information just because it's coming straight from the official sources and the actual witnesses also tends to change as it develops. i think what we'll see from the white house is a cautious statement that stays away from the facts and the numbers. and talks about
